Laughing Jack Jack's Shiraz 2018 (Barossa Valley)
Vibrant in colour, dark core with a crimson/red rim, the Laughing Jack Jack's Shiraz 2018 has a bouquet that shimmers with red fruit. Fresh damson and sweet cherry notes play against the faintest suggestion of dusty oak. The palate is medium bodied with a soft seductive palate. Tannins are beautifully talcy, giving the wine the silkiest mouthfeel.
The grapes were de-stemmed and whole berries transferred into open top fermenters. 60% was made in 5 & 8 tonne open tops with 3 pumpovers per day. 40% made in small 3 tonne open tops with hand plunging three times per day. Both receiving an occasional rack and return to chillers for cooling only. After fermentation the wine was then drained to oak barrels and skins were hand dug out of the fermenters into the basket press. – Winery Notes
